00:22
Good job guys, you guys got me royally.
00:26
We're doing a prank against a gentleman and his son.
00:29
I'm totally against it,
00:30
and by totally against it, I mean I love it.
00:32
They think they're going out for a free round of golf,
00:35
but little do they go, they're getting paired up with
00:37
Jim from Parks and Rec, and his agent.
00:40
And I'm playing agent to actor Jim O'Heir.
00:43
Jim O'Heir's a national treasure.
00:45
Literally, we golfed with them.
00:47
Great conversations, we were laughing,
00:48
Joe is very outgoing.
00:50
As we were getting closer to the hole,
00:51
I forgot we were doing a bit.
00:53
Your dad's a liar.
00:55
Cool thing about prank, he had play five holes with him.
00:57
So after he'd earned that trust,
00:59
they really cared about Toby and Jim.
01:01
Joe, the father,
01:03
touches a cart, but the cart takes off.
01:06
And it ends up in this lake.
01:08
[Joey] One, two, three.
01:11
Go cart, go cart, go cart.
01:13
Oh shi-- (bleep).
01:19
Oh shoot.
01:22
You saw everything fly,
01:24
you have computers floating everywhere.
01:26
It was so spot on.
01:27
What did you do?
01:30
And that's when things go bad.
01:33
It hit me that,
01:34
I've got to be mean to this really nice guy and his kid.
01:39
Why is my (bleeping) cart in the lake?
01:42
Joe, you hit the switch?
01:44
On the back of a cart?
01:45
I came down here, I did a lot of screaming, a lotta yellin',
01:48
and Joe took it.
01:49
Joe, I gotta tell ya, I feel like you did this.
01:51
He told me what to hit, he said he needed a reset.
01:54
Why are we blaming this on me?
01:57
Oh, dude.
01:59
[Joey] Where are you going, sir?
02:00
[Joe] I'm gonna go get your boss.
02:01
[Joey] You can't take a cart, sir.
02:03
And my dad took off to get help.
02:04
What were you thinking when he drove away?
02:06
I was just like, what the (bleep)?
02:09
Joe, can you
02:10
please stay? You can't take a cart
02:10
after you put one in there.
02:11
You can tell, like, he has a strategic mind.
02:13
'Cause he's like, really,
02:14
stay here, he's like, yeah, yeah, okay.
02:15
What is gonna happen?
02:17
And then his son, he got in the water for his dad.
02:19
We wanted you in.
02:21
My son who goes in the water for me.
02:23
That was so much fun.
02:27
It couldn't have gone better.
